This project is a joint effort between Electric Applications Incorporated and C&D/Trojan Battery Company. The project demonstrates the improved fast charging capability and improved total energy through-put of newly developed batteries from C&D/Trojan Battery Company.
A Fire Load and Fire Load Density calculation was developed for a typical 12V – 100 Ah lead storage battery.
The objective of this project was to use a controlled overcharge protocol to enable lead-acid batteries to meet the life cycle and Total Cost of Operation requirements of the emerging Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) market, improving the competitiveness of AGM batteries in the BESS market, relative to that of other technologies (e.g. lithium ion).
This Project was a collaboration between the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and the Advanced Lead Acid Battery Consortium (ALABC) Project. This Project assessed the performance of lead-acid batteries in start-stop applications. Work was conducted with objectives of (1) developing a performance baseline for lead-acid and lead-carbon batteries in start-stop applications, and (2) analyzing “gaps” between this baseline performance and the end-of-life characteristics targeted by the USDoE through the US Advanced Battery Consortium (USABC).
